Utes: A driver is banned from racing in 2015 for causing this intentional accident

Australian race officials have taken a commendable stand against drivers who deliberately ram others when they’re angry. Geoff Fane has been banned from competition for the rest of 2015 following the below crash where he deliberately turned into another driver (and verbally abused him afterwards – a real class act).

Pastor Maldonado famously committed similar offences in F1, and only last week Olivier Pla hit a sportscar rival during practice at Sebring. Both got away with relatively minor penalties, so hopefully this lengthy ban will help drive a change in attitudes across all series. It sets a great precedent because there’s no place in any sport for professional fouls of this magnitude.
